How do I fix the sound on my LG TV?

Answered by Frank Schwing

To fix the sound on your LG TV, there are several steps you can take. First, check if the TV Sound Out is set to TV Speaker. This can be done by accessing the settings menu on your TV. Navigate to the audio settings and make sure that the output is set to TV Speaker. Sometimes, the sound may be directed to an external device, such as a soundbar or a home theater system, so double-check this setting.

Next, ensure that the correct input is selected on the TV. If you are using an external source, such as a cable box or a gaming console, make sure that the TV is set to the corresponding input. This can usually be done by pressing the Input or Source button on your TV remote and selecting the appropriate input option.

If you are still not getting sound, check if the external source is switched on and functioning properly. Ensure that it is connected to the TV using the correct cables and that both the TV and the external device are powered on.

If the connection between the external source and the TV is via an audio cable, such as HDMI ARC, optical, or analog, check if the audio connector is secure at both ends. Sometimes, loose connections can result in no sound or poor audio quality.

It is also important to check if the TV volume is set to the correct level and not muted. Use the volume buttons on your TV remote to increase the volume and ensure that it is audible. If the TV has a mute button, make sure it is not activated.

If none of the above steps resolve the issue, try troubleshooting the external device itself. Test it on another TV or try using a different audio source to see if the problem lies with the device rather than the TV.

In some cases, software updates for the TV or the external device may be available. Check the manufacturer’s website or the device’s settings menu for any available updates and install them if necessary.

If you have tried all of the above steps and are still experiencing issues with the sound on your LG TV, it may be advisable to contact LG customer support or seek assistance from a professional technician. They will be able to provide further guidance and help resolve the issue.
